good morning. i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm anthony mason. here are a few of the stories we'll be looking at on cbs "this morning saturday." the surprising jobs number is putting a whole new dynamic to the presidential race. >> abu hamza al masri a long sought terror suspect has been extradited to the u.s. he'll stand trial in civilian court. >> texas cheerleaders display bible verses on the football field, bringing a new glare of controversy under the friday night lights. >> returning marine surprises his kid brother for an emotional reunion with a very happy ending. all that and so much more on cbs
5:01 am
"this morning," saturday, october 6, 2012. and good morning. welcome to the weekend. nice to be with you. >> we're here again. back again. >> one more time. we have breaking news a verdict in the trial of pope benedict's butler. we begin this morning with the race for the white house. and the abrupt turn brought on by the latest jobs numbers. the labor department said friday the nation's unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in september. that's the first time it's fallen below 8% since just after president obama took office in 2009. it's a bit of a relief for the president who is trying to move past a bad performance at the first presidential debate. his opponent mitt romney says the job numbers are deceiving. jan crawford is traveling with the romney campaign in orlando, florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it has been a pretty tough week for the president. he's been trying to put that rocky debate performance behind
5:02 am
him. that disappointed his supporters and energized his critics. we got that good news. yesterday he did. he seized on it. >> more americans entered the workforce, more people are getting jobs. >> reporter: at a campaign rally in the swing state of ohio the president also used the jobs report to make a political point with the not so subtle message to mitt romney. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. just try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> reporter: the struggling economy is considered the president's soft spot and number one issue for voters. it's a centerpiece of romney's campaign, they hit the president hard throughout on employment including in this week's debate. >> we have 43 three straight
5:03 am
months above 8%. i'll help create 12 million new jobs in this country. >> reporter: the new jobs report with unemployment below 8% robbed romney of one of his most reliable campaign lines. he said friday the economy should be better and that the decline in the unemployment rate showed how much people are struggling. >> looks like unemployment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day that the president got elected our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: now advisers tell me romney will continue prosecuting the case against the president on the economy. we saw him start that on wednesday night's debate. romney will be doing more debate prep here in orlando. the next presidential debate is week after next. we have a vice presidential debate later this week.
5:04 am
>> jan crawford in orlando, florida. thanks. and joining us now, senior u.s. economist and from washington cbs news political director john dickerson. it is gate to have both of you with us. i want to begin with you elsen about the jobs report. how do you characterize it? >> i would characterize jobs in general remaining slow, too slow and been moving sideways on average since last year. but this was a better report. households told us we created a lot more jobs in september and not only that more people came back in the labor market to look for work. that's typically a sign of confidence on the part of households that their prospects for getting a job have improved. wages were up. the work week was longer. people were working longer hours. there were a lot of good pieces within this report. >> a number of jobs in the report were part time, two-thirds of the lower end of the unemployment rate came from
5:05 am
these part time jobs. what does that say to you about the recovery? >> that's the trend in place. when the unemployment rate is high, it came down but still high it means it's an employers labor market and in order to get everybody employed they may have to take concessions and one of those concessions is working part time when you could wish you could get a full time job. some say it's better than nothing. we need to get more of those part time workers in full time position. many of those work's are happy to have something. >> we had a dip in manufacturing jobs created. that has been a big part of the recovery. we did see growth in construction jobs. what do you make of those two moves? >> the drop in manufacturing jobs was surprising but job growth in that sector has been slower since earlier in the year. a lot of it stemming from a general slow down in growth abroad which means foreign demand has been slowing. and so we've seen some job loss now in manufacturing as you said that's always been a bright spot
5:06 am
until now. on the flip side construction. we got a housing recovery that is strengthening, and the jobs gains in construction have occurred for four straight months now. >> john, this is obviously just what the president needed to hear after a tough week as jan referred to. how significant do you think, you know, this is for the president at this point in the campaign in >> i think internally for the president and for democrats it's a bit of a feeder breaker after two days of suffering from his bad debate performance. i think more broadly, though, it probably won have a huge impact. it does rob mitt romney of hat line that he had been using about 8% unemployment but if you talk to the strategists they basically have felt that people's views about the economy are baked in at this point. that's been helping the president a little bit since mitt romney has been talk about how bad the economy is, that's been helping in terms of creating a floor for the president but it also means there's a bit of a ceiling, it means people won't get elated about the economy because the
5:07 am
number dropped. >> john, i'm curious to know what factors weigh more heavily. is at any time debates or these jobs numbers. we have one more report before the election going to weigh more heavily? >> it's a good question. certainly for the people who are just tuning into the election and who watch the debate last week, for them the debate is the thing that's probably still top of mind. in the long run, though, of course the economy, the way people feel about the direction of the country which is related to their own economic picture that's still the biggest overall driver in this campaign, though. i until think right now in this moment, the debate is still driving a lot of people's vote. >> one more report before the election. as you said we got a trend going. we've seen these numbers. we're not expecting anything radically different next month? >> more of the same. so close to the election i would say after that first debate, in my think, voters will probably already solidify how they will
5:08 am
vote after that first debate. coming on just the back side of that, this jobs report will help. but there's a lot of jobs reports that both candidates can wrap their thoughts around. there's always good and bad things in these jobs numbers so it's easy to find support there for either side. >> given the fall out from the last presidential debate in the obama administration how are they prepping vp biden for this and how might he play things differently now as a result? >> there has to be more specific prosecution of the argument against mitt romney calling the romney team out on some of these specifics whether it's on tax cuts or on medicare. i think one of the interesting dynamics to watch in the vice presidential debate is there's a difference between what paul ryan believes and what mitt romney believes and that is on these, on some of these important issues about taxes and health care and medicare. so that's an area where you can
5:09 am
imagine vice president biden working to press ryan on the details and the inconsistencies between the two of them. >> really interesting point. thanks so much. coming up in our next half hour, round 2009 the presidential debate and how body language is so important in determining the winner. breaking news from rome. there's a verdict in the trial of pop benedict's former butler. paolo gabriele was convicted this morning of leaking the pope's private papers to a wrournlist. he's been sentenced to 18 months in prison. >> reporter: good morning. well the prosecution wanted three year sentence, the defense asked for an acquittal. the butler said he acted on behalf of the catholic church and the pope. he sawed i don't feel like a thief. the verdict was a foregone conclusion. paolo gabriele confessed but he was caught. the unanswered question is whether he acted alone. during his testimony the butler
5:10 am
insisted he had no accomplices but in a statement to the vatican police he named half a dozen people including priests and cardinals who he said suggested he leak documents to an italian journalists. some 80 boxes were removed from paolo gabriele's apartment in vatican city. some documents bore pope benedict's own hand writing including the word destroy written in german. it revealed the secret workings of the vatican. >> the importance of this trial is the vatican showing it's taking a serious breach of trust, a serious crime, if you will, taking it very seriously. in the past there's been the idea anybody can get away with figure and that's clearly not the case. >> reporter: paolo gabriele said he acted to expose what he saw as evil and corruption in the church which was not being brought to the attention of the pope. he expressed annee to the pope
5:11 am
for betraying his trust. it's expected the pope will par on the man. if paolo gabriele goes to jail it will be in italy since the vatican does not have a long term detention fast. >> what's likely to happen to the butler after he gets out of prison, do you think? >> reporter: well the consensus if he does go jail it won't be for very long. he'll almost certainly on past record get a job somewhere in the vatican buried deep where he won't get to see the public or have access to documents. the pope and church wants to look after his family and he's a citizen of vatican city and has a wife and three children. now to the war on terror. radical islamic preacher abu hamza al masri and four other suspects are back in the u.s. this morning to face terrorism charges. their planes arrived during the night outside new york and in connecticut. abu hamza al masri had been in a british high-security prison
5:12 am
since 2004 but on friday all of their appeals ran out and britain's high court ordered them extradited to the u.s. immediately. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning to you. i want to understand who is abu hamza al masri. >> reporter: good morning. well, abu hamza al masri is a leading radical islam cleric. best known perhaps for his fiery preaching in north london mosque which was favored in the past by al qaeda operatives like richard reid and the 9/11 conspirators. he's been in a british jail since 2004. he's been charged by the u.s. government in a series of plots, one thing he's accused of conspiring to kidnap american tourists in 1998 and setting up an al qaeda training camp in oregon in 1999. he started with aiding taliban and al qaeda efforts in afghanistan. >> how come it has taken so long
5:13 am
to bring masri to the united states? >> reporter: this has been a long fight. he's been fighting extradition since his m dictment because he knows frankly he faces a life sentence here in the u.s. one of his alleged co-conspirators has already been convicted and he's sentenced to life in prison. masri is an interesting character. he lost both hands and one eye fighting the soviets in afghanistan and he says he suffers a number of physical ailments. he lists diabetes and depression among them. his supporters argued if masri came to the u.s. he would be subject to human rights violations in prison. so they used those arguments to drag these things out. >> who were the other suspects that were brought back? >> reporter: two of them are terrorism financiers. and the other is accused of bombings in tunisia.
5:14 am
they are charged with conspiring to kill americans and another one is accused of attempting to use a weapons of mass destruction. people remember the 1998 attack. it was al qaeda's largest twirngs bombings of the embassies in east africa, caused the deaths of more than 220 people. a number of other al qaeda operatives have been convicted in the embassy bombing case, now these two fellows will go on trial. >> why are these cases so important to u.s. prosecutors? >> reporter: well, you know, probably the biggest thing is this is another chance for the department of justice to prove terror prosecutions can be handled successfully in civilian court. the prosecution of abu hamza is important because it counters the islamic narrative. he's been a big recruiter and successful prosecution on american soil will effectively silence his voice for a long time strike being another big blow against al qaeda. >> bob orr in washington.
5:15 am
chaos continues for american airlines. in the last 30 days american has delayed more than 16,000 flights and cancelled more than 1,000 others. over the last few days seat problems have led to more than 90 flights being cancelled. joining us now is peter greenberg. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> what is american saying is causing these seat problems? >> reporter: believe it or not, soda and coffee. oil explain. according to american build up of so much spilled coffee and soda underneath the seats gummed up the tracking mechanism which allowed the seat to come loose. we're talking 48, 757 aircraft. >> really? >> really? we're supposed to believe somehow american airlines is different from every other airline and has a much bigger problem with this stuff? >> reporter: the real problem might be that out sourced the maintenance. the work that was done on these planes is not done by american
5:16 am
maintenance personnel done by a separate company. american was able to i've the problem as the saddle. clamp on tracking mechanism. they fixed 42 of those 48 planes. the other six planes will be finished by noon today. >> these problems also came up after talks with the union fell through. is there any concern that sabotage might be involved? >> reporter: we're talking about two separate unions. the pilots unions are not back to the table. we're really talking about the maintenance situation and who is performing it. that was not a union situation. of course it gave the union ammunition to claim america was proudly boasted for all these years never out sourced their maintenance decided to do some of that maintenance out of the company. >> peter, american airlines issued this statement. they said by saturday october 6th we plan to have all of hour 48 boeing 757 back in service.
5:17 am
we've identified the issue and we're seeking an faa approved locking mechanism to make sure no seat can be dislodged. do you buy that? >> reporter: i do. they figured out the fix. the faa fairfax on the saddle clamping mechanism. the real issue is the public relations issue. for the flying public of course the sub text here that they are asking these questions if the seats aren't fastened what about the wing. that's not the case. but these people are a little worried. >> if you have a flight booked on american right now, should you be worried? is it safe to fly the airline? >> reporter: i think it is. i would be flying it today. bottom line is most people who say they want to book away from american, remember this. there are severely discounted heavily booked advance tickets with penalties for change flights. bottom line is they will fly. >> peter greenberg.

thanks. a deadly meningitis outbreak has spread to seven states. the centers for disease control says those states include michigan, indiana, tennessee, florida, north carolina, virginia and maryland. 47 people have been sickened in the outbreak, five have died. the fungal meningitis has been traced to steroid shots made at a massachusetts lab. the shots used to treat back pain were shipped to clinics in 23 states. it's about 18 after the hour and here's lonnie quinn our first check of the weather. >> good morning. let's get right to the satellite radar picture. the satellite shows you where the clouds are. radar shows you where the rain is. big string of rain. cold front. all right. this cold front will affect the northeast this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored by of the mid-atlantic. yes you see some rain on the picture. bigger story here is the temperatures. cold front separates warm air from cold air and we have temperatures in the 70s from boston down d.c. today.

5:20 am
a judge has to decide whether cheerleaders can use religious messages during games. and with more how the controversy is playing out. >> reporter: good morning. the game was the first since a judge heard arguments about whether the cheerleaders must stop using biblical messages. around here religion and high school football are two things people are passionate about. friday night under the lights in texas with the band, the fans, the players and something different, a banner with a christian message written by the school's cheerleaders. >> we thought it would be a great message. >> reporter: that message is at the center of a legal battle. the school superintendent banned the religious themed banners last month when it was claimed they violated the separation of church and state. the judge allowed the practice to continue until he rules and last night there were more
5:21 am
religious signs than ever before. and friends and family who say the cheerleaders messages on the banners are free speech. >> both the united states constitution and the texas constitution guarantee the right to freely express your religious viewpoint. >> reporter: the cheer leaders parents hired an attorney to keep the christian banners. he says because the girls decided to use the bible verses on their own and not at the school's request it's their protected speech. >> even at school football games. >> yes. >> reporter: still among the overwhelming support for the girls there's some that believe religion has no place here. >> once you start doing it, it's a slippery slope. here it's a very big christian community but what if somebody came out and said they want to put scripture on the koran
5:22 am
orato or tora on it? >> what if you count do that? >> it would be crushing to our team and football team and to many of our citizens. >> reporter: the judge said he will hand down a ruling in two weeks but that likely will not end the legal battle as both sides say they will continue to fight to make their case. anthony and rebecca. >> coming up the world's largest underground water pipe manufacturer accused of fraud. costing taxpayers millions. cbs news investigative correspondent cheryl atkinson has exclusive details. >> brain injuries could cost your child their future. new evidence some sports should be modified before kids take part. you're watching cbs "this morning saturday". ,,

. story caught our attention, nationals earlier this week, first division crown since they moved to washington in 2005. it's interesting because bernanke, ben bernanke, our fed chairman did something pretty rare, i think of a fed chairman. he wrote this essay in the "wall street journal" and said people decry the absence of leadership in washington these days. my response look no further than the home team dugout at national park. he's applauding what they are doing. >> ben bernanke is a baseball fan. who knew. >> he has loved the nationals ever since 2005. >> look, it's all about bringing economics into the ball game. and analyzing players from a fiscal point of view. this is a huge hollywood block bluster movie for brad pitt. >> if the economy had given

5:31 am
president obama is facing a dilemma. how does he improve on his first disappointing appearance. >> the president began this segment so i get the last word. >> as we were reminded it's not just what you say but what your body language says about you. it's been the case for presidential candidates since the very first televised debate in 1960. whether it's impatiently glances at a watch or unexpectedly approaching your rival. >> i believe i can. >> how politicians carry themselves can change how voters feel about them. with two more presidential debates to go, the body language is sure to evolve as we head into the next round of this three round fight. >> by most accounts mitt romney was viewed as the clear winner. according to a new cbs poll of
5:32 am
uncommitted voters said romney won. how important is body language. a former fbi body language expert joins us and is the author of "what every body is sayi saying." >> it was so uncharacteristic. we see him bounding up airplane stairs and within the first three minutes the performance was flat. and that's really what everybody is commenting on is just how flat the performance was. how unenergetic and very uncharacteristic. we're used to seeing someone that's very dynamic, very charismatic and very open. >> in your experience when you see such a dramatic change in an individual what usually underlies that change. >> that's a great change. i think a lot of it has to do with concerns and worry.
5:33 am
you know when we see that tension in the face and we see those compressed lips and we see the lack of eye contact, which we saw a lot of, there's either too much going on in the brain or there's too much concern and i think all those negative emotions were very much present there. >> what about facial expressions. he was looking down. >> that's not a good thing to do if you're doing -- in essence, a performance. very dramatic that he wasn't making great eye contact, he wasn't facing, he wasn't relaxing his face and all this speaks to the audience that there's issues there. what are the issues? what your concerned? what is your worry. we can't throw that out of our mine. it's there. everybody is talking about it. that's why it was in essence a poor performance. >> what do you make of mitt romney's performance. >> it was extraordinary when you
5:34 am
consider how uncomfortable he seems in other performances. he's been ale little more stiff and so forth. his gestures were large. they were grand. they were expansive. and he looked directly at the president and so forth. and that's what you want. because gestures potentially give word. when the gestures are working with the words then they really add to the message. >> so if you were giving advice to boston these candidates for the next debate what would you tell them? >> well, for romney he's going to have to do the same thing all over again. for the president, you know, be yourself. be what we're used to seeing in 2008, a lot of energy, broad gestures. illustrate. and just make better eye contact. >> if you're in the room with him, what do you do, hold your face and look up?
5:35 am
>> well, you don't rub the president's face. the first clue in the bureau. what we do say is look, you know you did bad. here's why you did bad. let's turn towards the other candidate, let's make good eye contact. no need to write something down that you're going to be talking about in 12 seconds. move on. >> we have to move on. thanks for being with us this morning. >> now we go lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> let's start off with the radar and satellite picture shine what's is going on. the biggest story going on is the cold front. this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored byes of the mid-atlantic. much colder air on the back side of this front. cold air and moisture. take a look at this picture at that front came through north dakota and this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored byes of minnesota yesterday.

contact sports. great to have you with us. good morning. >> thank you. >> these are pretty dramatic changes you want to see go into effect. why? >> i think if young brains are just more vulnerable to serious injury. young brains are housed in big heads on weak neck and the same amount of force to a youngster will impart much more injurous effect to the brain. >> happens to the brain when it's hit in a contact sport like football. >> the brain in terms of concussion means to shake violently. that's what happens. this brain moves around inside the skull, banging up against the inside of the skull in the frontal and the temporal areas take the brunt of the force.
5:49 am
>> you describe children's brains like bobble heads. >> yes. this is not a patriot. >> thank you. >> if you look at mark's head and i hit it, it shakes pretty violently. it shakes like that because the neck is very weak in this structure. if that neck were strong and firm it wouldn't go like that president that extra shaking imparts greater injury to the brain. >> lee, kids are under enormous pressure in high school to play a lot of these contact sports. how is it possible for a parent to try to curb that behavior if you want to? >> a lot of my parents' kids don't want them to play football. but i think that what parents have to the is come together and say how can we make this safer for our kids.
5:50 am
we're all learning about sideline concussions and when we need to pull kids and not push them back in there. we need to come together on this. what we're doing we're sacrificing these short term glory on the field for a long term effect and heal and well being down the road. >> what would you modify about the sport? >> in football i would eliminate tackle football. i would certainly keep the game of football. below the age of 4 it would be flag football. teach the skills of tackling. just don't barb bodies and heads and bring people to the ground. use tackling dummies to learn the skills. in ice hockey simply full bodychecking is out below the age of 14. in soccer, this one is tough for some but i would eliminate heading because it's in the act of heading that all head injuries happen in soccer. >> lee, do you think there's a ground swell among parents to push for these changes? >> no. i on the think enough parents are aware or take it seriously. i think we live in a society
5:51 am
where the sports culture is so pervasive. but i say to parents all the time, especially friends whose kids are in the football, he's not is going to be a professional player. why are you so, you know, why are you pushing this. >> colleges push for it. i mean colleges want to see the well-rounded kid that has done it all. >> it's in our culture. i would deed you putting helmets on field hockey, girls lacrosse. what is wrong with that? >> there's nothing wrong with it. it's in the book. definitely, lee, it should to be done. because in those two sports almost all concussion happens from being struck in the head or face with a stick. if you have a helmet on with face protection you eliminate almost all conkugs in those two sports. >> thank you both for being with us this morning. >> later, is she real or animae. that that and other stories
